Build your own RC Car using Lego, an Xbox Controller and a Raspberry Pi

If like me you firmly believe that there is no upper age limit on Lego (Note that it is LEGO not LegoS) then have a look at this article http://blog.zephod.com/post/37120089376/lego-xbox-raspberry-pi
The author, Tom Rees, built a working Radio Controlled car using a Raspberry Pi to control some old style Lego motors through a couple of Ada fruit interface boards.
In practice you could probably buy a couple of Lego Nxt motors from e-bay for less and hack them around instead, but hey where is the fun in that? Er.. lots probably.
Either way have a look, its always good to see how other people hack problems.
